DetailsGlobalization has an ever-increasing impact on our lives. It has made the world smaller and brought us closer together yet it can also make us more vulnerable and divided. The crisis caused by the deregulation of finance and banking is a devastating example of the knock-on effects of globalization.
This fully revised fourth edition unpacks the history and complexities of globalization, examining the forces in whose interests it works. And while the global exchange of people, products, plants, animals, technologies and ideas continues to accelerate, the key question that Wayne Ellwood addresses is: ‘How can globalization be a positive force for change?’
